Institute for the History of Musical Reception and Interpretation

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Institute for the History of Musical Reception and Interpretation (IMRI) is a musicological research institute at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg .


IMRI, founded in June 2006 by Joachim Brügge , Wolfgang Gratzer and Thomas Hochradner , is dedicated to selected project-related topics relating to the reception and interpretation of music. This is intended to take into account an art university self-image, according to which music-making practice and musicological reflection are equally creative activities, predestined to stimulate, correct or strengthen each other.

In the context of a music-historical approach, courses, projects, lectures, symposia and publications by the institute members deal with exemplary or symptomatic processes of musical reception and interpretation. One focus here is the examination of the history of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's impact .

The name of the institute should reflect a distinction between forms of musical interpretation (artistic adaptations such as performances or composed arrangements) and forms of musical reception (dealing with music, e.g. from the side of science or the feature pages).
